Good question.

Response to intellectual property?

Dave, that is a good question? Google pays the Mountaineer Books each time it sells a copy on line and perhaps some of it will trickle down to me. I am not sure what the amount would be but my guess is that Google is paying very little for each copy it sells. The Copyright is protected but since you can read a lot of the book on line I am not sure how this is all going to turn out. As you know from your great book, putting a guidebook together is a labor of love and not that profitable. I was not included in any of the negotiations but I think its the only way to sell any significant number of books in the future. Hopefully, this process which is just in its infancy will lead to more content and constant updating and reader input.
